PUMPKIN PIE & BEING THANKFUL

Thanksgiving is another one of those special-days that's a little confusing to me.

Kinda like Memorial Day: you'd think it's about barbecues, parades and picnics because that's what happens on Memorial Day - but it isn't about those things at all. So I thought Thanksgiving was all about eating turkey and pie.... until the guy on NPR they said something about pilgrims and indians and being thankful. Or something like that.


I don't know anything about pilgrims. Or indians. But I do know what it means to be thankful. So while I was waiting to eat pie, I made a list of things I'm thankful for:


pie
holidays
my human (even though she leaves us alone sometimes and smells like other dogs)

brother Dutch

breakfast

dinner
cheetos
popeye's nuggets
baby cowpies

bully sticks

Jack & Vegas the crazy labradors

The Man (Jack & Vegas' human)
my spotted friends

my blog friends
my buddy Google
naps

sunshine

the beach
the park
little squeaky tennis balls
Animal Planet

There's more, but that's as far as I got before it was time to
eat pie. I've been waiting to taste pumpkin pie ever since I saw that ginormous 1658lb beast at the pumpkin festival. And after almost two months of waiting, it only took me about 3 seconds and 2 bites to make the pie disappear.

I planned on finishing my Thankful List after the pie. But after the pie came turkey and after the turkey came stuffing and after the pie, turkey and stuffing I was kinda tired so I took a nap instead. My human says that happens sometimes on Thanksgiving.

A special-day of food AND naps?? Forget about pilgrims and indians - I'm pretty sure a pug must have invented Thanksgiving. I hope you all had a good one!

Wow Puglet! A whole piece of pumpkin pie to yourself. That's impressive!

I wonder what Cheetos pie would taste like...

you are so lucky puglet! my mom would NEVER let me eat even one bite of pie and you got a whole piece! i'm so jealous! she will occasionally let me have a small piece of cheese or some lunch meat but with the meat theres always one piece that has something wrapped in it. i think she calls it a 'pill' but its doesnt matter cuz i eat it anyway

Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Just so you know, one of the many things I'm thankful for this year is YOU! Thanks for sharing your adventures with us and thanks for putting a smile on my face everyday!

Hi Puglet! You are one lucky pug to get pumpkin pie. It looks delicious and I bet you can't wait until next year.

I know what you mean about the naps. I feel asleep right after dinner and slept until this morning. I ate a little bit too much food and I'm having a hard time getting motivated today. I think I'm going to take another nap now so that I'm wide awake for dinner.

Yup - the pie was GOOD!

Pretty sure I wasn't supposed to eat the whole piece by myself. It just smelled sooooooo tasty - I couldn't help it.

I thought my human would be mad, but she kinda laughed and said pie only happens once a year.

Pumpkin pie didn't make me sick like the baby-cow pies, but I had a hard time getting out of bed today. All I wanted to do was nap and think about pie.
